Anxiety- I feel like i'm going to die, but don't know what from

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi

So for about 4 weeks i have randomly started to think that i'm going to die?

It started off thinking that i was going to die before my boyfriends birthday. I wasn't eating, i was shaking, i couldn't sleep. Before bed i would always think, what if i don't wake up? What if i have that disease where people die in their sleep? What if i have a heart attack? But in the day i would just be scared of the future, not of the present. I think, what if i die in a car crash and then i won't be able to see my boyfriend again, or what if a blade of a lawn mower hits me in a freak accident then i won't be able to have kids or get married.

His birthday has passed and i still haven't died, but why do i keep thinking that i'm going to die?

I have adrenaline running through me every single day, i'm exhausted feeling this way. I don't have an appetite, no sex drive, anxious for no reason.

I'm completly healthy, i'm young (17), my family is great, i have a loving relationship with my boyfriend.

I just don't know why i'm soo scared that i'm going to die in the future?

Please respond to this, because it's freaking me out and i'm so stressed out

    Hi Marisa! I know it's not easy, but the best thing you can do in this situation is realize that you are not going to die anytime soon! You're young, healthy, and have your whole life in front of you! I'm 19, so we're the same age basically. We all face hardships in our lives, but we get over them and grow stronger from them. You're going to get past this feeling of an impending doom. You will live a long, happy, fun life!! Just please don't think you are going to die anytime soon, because you're not!! Name 5 things that you are able to do in your life right now that make you happy, than go and do them! Go do things like watch funny movies, go outside in the sun, go for a jog, go to the pool, lay in the sun with your headphones in. Just relax and enjoy yourself, even though it may be hard. Stress is the thing that would kill you before anything else. It's hard on the body, you need to try to get rid of it. I believe in you! I know you can do it, I been in a similar position as you, and it gets better!😃

    Hey there! I am also 17 years old. Everyday for the past 3 years I have woken up thinking I am going to die today but it has never happened. This fear has made me house bound because I am to scared to be outside. You can fight this, you dont want to lose your life to this fear. You are  not alone in this smile x

    Dear marisa,

    When i was about your age I had something similar, i thought i had something terribly wrong with me and i lost weight with worrying, the worry brought on a sinus infection and then i thought i had something like a brain tumour or something, whether it's our hormones at such an age heightens things i dont know, some of us are prone to worrying! I did get over the worry, i am now 52 and menopausal and the worry has returned again, no doubt due to my hormones! You will get past this stage believe me, so you can enjoy your teenage years and beyond, try not to worry about it, you aren't alone xx

      Dear marisa

      Yes some of us are prone to it, when i was younger I also had abit of ocd, i think alot of people do, some manage to control it and some don't so well, i have plodded through life but i will always be a worrier and have good and bad moments, i will just say dont ever bottle things up and try to always talk about your fears etc it does help and dont beat yourself up about it because there are alot of people with these issues xx
